1) Role of basophils in immune disorders such as allergy
2) Role of basophils in protective immunity against infections
3) in vivo imaging of basophil-mediated immune responses
Main objective of the immunology course for undergraduate students is to provide them the basic ideas how the immune system works and is regulated in various physiological and pathological settings including infections, cancer, autoimmune and allergic disorders, and organ transplantation. In the immunology course for graduate students, they study molecular mechanisms underlying the development of immune diseases including allergy and parasitic infection, by employing advanced technology in molecular biology, biochemistry, cellular biology and developmental engineering.
